The night life is out there for X-Files star Gillian
X-FILES star Gillian Anderson enjoyed a taste of Scottish hospitality at the weekend.
The actress - who has been dubbed the "sexiest woman in the world" - is in Glasgow to film her new movie over the next six weeks.
However, before filming got underway today, Gillian let her hair down at some of the city's flashier nightspots.
Just hours after arriving in Glasgow on Friday, she enjoyed a meal at the trendy Air Organic restaurant in the West End.
The restaurant is believed to be near the luxury apartment she has rented for her 40-day stay in Scotland.
Gillian then went on to the upmarket Art House Hotel in Bath Street to join the film crew for a party.
Gillian's role in the new movie, House of Mirth, is a far cry from Agent Scully, the part she plays in the cult American sci-fi series.
She plays a love-struck socialite at the turn of the century.
Gillian said recently: "I'd like to do everything you don't see in Scully. I'm thirsty to work with different actors."
House of Mirth is set in New York in 1905. The producers chose Glasgow as a location because its magnificent architecture is close to New York of that period.
Gillian is picking up just pounds 250 a day, a drop in the ocean compared to the pounds 3million she gets for her X-Files role.
